I saw someone ask “Where to go in the caribbean?” Wow, that’s a tough question. I have been to many of the Caribbean islands. It really depends on what you are looking for. Here a list of some of my favorites, and what you might find.

St Thomas: This is probably my favorite! It is the mall of the Caribbean. You can find deals on electronics, jewelry, watches, camera, and even fine china. It also has some beautiful beaches.

Barbados: This is probably my second favorite. All the beaches are public. And it has some really nice beaches. The ocean water is warm like a bathtub. Great for snorkeling.

San Juan: I really liked Old San Juan. Neat little shops, and the fort is very cool. I would have liked to visit the rum factory.

Grand Cayman: Grand Cayman has some of the best diving in the world. Swim with stingrays at Stingray City. Visit the town of Hell and send post cards to your friends. Visit the Tortuga rum cake factory store for free samples (and buy rum cakes). Visit the turtle farm.

Jamaica: You can climb Dunn’s River Falls. Snorkeling is okay. There are tours to Bob Marley’s house. Locals are a bit pushy.

Dominica: A beautiful island made up of tropical rain forest and banana plantations.

St Martin/St Maarten: Half Dutch, half British. Decent snorkling. An interesting blend of two cultures.

There are many Caribbean travel guides that will you more detailed information on the various islands.
